DMSA 250mg #50


Price: $160.00
Meso-2, 3-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is a sulfhydryl-containing, water-soluble, non-toxic, orally administered, metal chelator which has been in use as an antidote to heavy metal toxicity since the 1950s. More recent clinical use and research substantiates this compound’s efficacy and safety, and establishes it as the premier metal chelation compound when compared to other available chelating substances. Provocation testing using DMSA, followed by a 6- to 24-hour toxic metal urine analysis, is recommended to assess the amount of heavy metal present. Before initiating a heavy metal challenge with DMSA, the physician should be assured the patient has sufficient creatinine clearance to
handle heavy metal excretion via the kidneys, as this is the primary route of elimination of heavy metals bound to DMSA. Check with your lab to establish their preferred protocol for the DMSA challenge. Some labs use a 24-hour urine collection, others a six-hour collection – which means a
different pre-collection protocol.

Heavy metal detoxification should be accompanied by regular colonic irrigation – weekly is preferable but no less than one colonic per cycle of DMSA (on the last day of the DMSA dosing if possible). More frequent colonics will aid in elimination and reduce the body’s toxic burden.

Metals chelated by DMSA include mercury, lead, arsenic, antimony, silver, bismuth, copper, cadmium, tin, nickel, zinc, thallium, and manganese.
